California implemented Pay on Death Deeds effective January 1, 2016

California implemented a new law, Pay on Death Deeds, effective January 1, 2016.

If you only have real property in California, you could decide to create a new deed, that allows your heir(s) to inherit upon your passing.  Beforehand, this could not be done.  You could place a person’s name as a joint tenant but that was actually giving them title.  This new law allows someone to inherit, but only after you pass away.

Please call to set up a conference with the elder law attorney, Valerie M. Logsdon.  Please do not attempt to do this yourself.
